I interviewed at a few Catholic schools in Michigan six years ago and the pay was between 18,000 and 22,000. My sister currently teaches at the Catholic school we all went to and makes about 29,000. Most of the teachers there are either single with few expenses, or have spouses who make enough money to support them and the teaching wage is supplemental. People not in those categories don't usually last too long.

To the best of my knowledge, teacher's salaries are covered by tuition. To substantially raise the salary, they would have to A.)substantially raise tuition or B.) substantially increase class sizes. I doubt either of those sound like good options, as each would probably cause parents to take their students elsewhere. Very unfortunate.
